Painting With The Girls 84

Day 84 (282 days to go)

 

As I have mentioned before, I love doing collages. It is so relaxing!! I decided that I will do the entire alphabet. I would like them to look very different from each other as in technique. If nobody buys them I will hang them in my office starting by letter Z. I will finally learn how to say it backwards, in case I ever need it!

Meanwhile in the United States, American painters followed the traditions developing in Europe. Realism became very useful as painters were depicting the majestic American scenery. They called themselves the Hudson River School, but painted sceneries from east to west.

Notable painters from this time were Thomas Cole, Bierstadt, Edwin Church, Thomas Eakins and Winslow Homer.
